NUREMBERG, Germany - Nuremberg has signed Japanese midfielder Mu Kanazaki from J-League club Nagoya Grampus on a free transfer.

The Bundesliga team says the 23-year-old Kanazaki has agreed to a deal through June 2014, with the option of an extension for a further two years. The player's contract with Nagoya had expired.

Nuremberg coach Michael Wiesinger says "Mu can play across all offensive positions, increasing the variety and quality of our attack."

Kanazaki, who won the J-League with Nagoya Grampus in 2010, has made five appearances for Japan.

National team teammate Hiroshi Kiyotake joined Nuremberg last year.
